Cords for an Eureka Oxygen 6992A

The plug connection between lower wand and the motorized nozzle seems to be partially burned out and does not maintain contact. Therefore, the nozzle works for a few seconds and stops. Can I purchase the cords I need? Is it possible to replace the cord on the motorized nozzle? I don't see the cords on the list of parts available to purchase. Our local vacuum shop would not fix it. Thank you.

Yes, that short cord in the power nozzle can be replaced and BOTH wands should also be replaced, not just the one that appears burnt. If your locan vac shop won't fix it, contact Eureka at the customer service number on the bottom of your vacuum. They will most likely set you up with the correct parts.

Electrolux power head not working no power


There are four points of connection to get power to the nozzle, any one of which can cause this condition, or an on/off condition. They are the connections in the neck of the machine itself where the hose is inserted in front. The second is underneath the hose handle, where it connects to the two pronged sheath cord. The third is at the lower end of the sheath cord where the power nozzle cord connects. The last is the reset itself. That's what I check first when one of them is brought into my shop, because, believe it or not, most people don't know that there's even a reset there. If the little red button is sticking up push it down firmly but not hard. It's possible to push the bottom right out of the reset unit itself. If the nozzle doesn't activate after pressing the reset, start by disconnecting the power cord that goes to the wands. Check for blackened, enlarged connection openings, or charged, blackened prongs. If no problems found there, continue on up the handle checking each connection point for these conditions. If you find the problem at any of the connection points both parts must be replaced, the male and the female ends. That usually means replacing the cords themselves, as the ends are not available separately. If the power nozzle still refuses to run you or a qualified repair person will need to open it up to check the motor itself to see if it's any good. Once the faulty part,(s) are found and replaced it should start right back up and run normally.

Tip

Extend a Vacuum's Hose "Lifespan"


There are several things that can lead to a fairly short "life span" on a vacuum hose. Hoses need to be replaced periodically anyway, but getting the maximum use means reduced cost for your investment. Common problems are: worn out hose, leaky hose, broken wire, loose connections, and of course, clogs.
Normal wear and tear may seem to be a problem that there's no help for, however anyone can reduce this on their vacuum hose. Some examples include:

Hang hose properly. Improper storage may promote wear on the hose and stress on the wiring. I recommend detaching from vacuum and wands, and hanging across two large hooks or hangars. This places weight upon two areas of hose, instead of just one.

Placing a hose sock on the hose will help reduce wear and tear caused by dragging back and forth on the floor, corners, and other surfaces. The heavier the fabric, the better protection.

Pulling the vacuum behind you while cleaning creates high stress on both the hose material and internal wiring. Indications of problems are loss of airflow/suction at end of hose for the first, and power nozzle not operating or intermittently operating. Avoid pulling vacuum behind you; move vacuum closer to the cleaning area to clean.

Loose connections are pretty much inevitable over time. The connections from hose to wand, wand to wand, and wand to power nozzle all are susceptible to wear and breakage. Replace hose and wand connections that are broken, loose, and/or blackened. Those things can cause bad electrical shock.

Clogs are often caused by a large item being vacuumed, but more often are due to a long, thin object being sucked up, sticking in the hose, and other stuff backing up against it. This will eventually cut off air flow and result in a burned out motor if not remedied.

Maximize your vacuum hose’s use by following the above suggestions.

My Ultralux 2000 vacuum power head does not work on my machine but does work on a different machine. What are the possilbe problems? I tried replacing the hose with a new one and that didn't help.


It's probably due to bad wiring connections between the wands, hose and wand, or power nozzle and wand. If it came with the Sidekick, try using it on the end of the hose. If not, simply try using the power nozzle on the end of the hose (no wands). If it works, then the problem is going to be with the cord sections in the wands. Check them good for cracks, breaks, and discoloration at connections. Replace if necessary.

My Epic 6500 power head will not turn on. Had to push the reset many times the last time it ran, and now it will not turn on. Help!


Does the power nozzle motor come on? Is it just that the brush won't turn? If it's just the brush not rotating, the belt probably broke and needs replaced.
Is the brush clean? If not, clean all threads, etc. off.
Check all wire connections for breaks, cracks, and discoloration. Power nozzle to wand, wand to wand, wand to hose. If any of those are found, that part, and probably the one it connects to. will need replaced.
Ensure all connections are snug.
Internal wiring, including connections, could be bad. This would include wiring in the power nozzle, wands, hose, or canister.
Reset or hose switch could be bad. These would need replaced.
Power nozzle motor could be bad. Generally the belt will break before the motor burns out, but it's possible it's didn't.
For any internal repairs, including belt replacement, the entire vacuum should be taken to an authorized Aerus Electrolux dealer. The service technician can also troubleshoot and find the problem. This is generally done at no charge.
You've got a great machine, and with proper care and maintenance it should last for years to come.

There is power but the motor seems to not turn, therefore, there is no movement via the rollers. please help


The belt which turns the roller brush is probably worn and therefore not turning the roller brush. You can get a replacement here:

The powerhead cuts in and out on power as you vacuum with the brushes. Works ok with suction only. Have replaced both wands and still cuts out, Can it be the powerhead connections? Help? TJZ


had the same problem with mine check all the prongs on the 2 wands and on the power nozzle and on the handle itself you will probably see that one of them is discolored or burned looking you will need to replace that section, I had to replace one of my wands, and then a second time I had to replace the hose section with the handle attached.

Replacement wand for canister


Whne you had your first problem with it, the cord at the bottom probably should have replaced also, if one end gets scrotched, the other end does also. One big reason why this happens is connecting and dis-connecting the power head while power is still applied to it. When you hook your skillet and it is turned on, it will arc, so does the contacts on the hose and power head. That prong is rusty, it is scrotched. Don't know if you can substitude, you might try to find a shop that has other wands and see if you can find a fit, either that or buy the one that is supposed to be with it.
